I found the content of T101 Media Life quiet interesting, finding and discussing possible reasons for wanting to project ourselves a certain way in the media and observing everyone else in the media as well. I feel the point of looking at yourself and our world through media is to see what is real, or what is mediated and therefore, becomes our reality. I have seen how much I am unconsciously using media, and trying to become less of a media zombie this semester, but sometimes it’s hard to tell if I am being a zombie or if I am reaching a pre-distinguished goal. Overall, I believe we, as humans, have become dependent on media and rely on it in every daily situation, but have found our role and that is why it is so important to know why we do what we do in the media.
